MEDIA COVID-19 LIES COLLAPSE
Because Spain holds the record for human longevity in Europe. The nation is home to more aged folk than any others, except Japan. Italy too has an exceptionally old population. With more than 40,000 cases and nearly 3,000 deaths, the profile of the people who are dying from the Covid-19 disease is now clear.
The most common victim is male, above the age of 80 and with previous health conditions, in particular, heart-related. That’s according to a report from the Carlos III Health Institute (ISCIII), which analysed 16,000 coronavirus cases, among which there were 566 deaths.
All the evidence so far is pointing to the influence of previous or existing illnesses when it comes to mortality rates. This was explained on Monday by Fernando Simón, director of the Health Ministry’s Coordination Centre for Health Alerts, and one of the government’s most visible faces in Spain during the on-going coronavirus crisis.
“The illness affects certain risk groups more: those with high blood pressure, people with respiratory problems, diabetics, they all have higher mortality rates,” he explained.
According to the study, 74% of coronavirus patients who died or who required intensive care had some kind of the previous condition.
This is also supported by María del Mar Tomás, the spokesperson for the Spanish Society of Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology (SEIMC), who adds that genetic factors that we don’t yet know about could also be playing a role.
The same argument is supported by Germán Peces-Barba, vice president of the Spanish Pneumology and Thoracic Surgery Society (SEPAR). “The fatality rates are closely associated to age and comorbidities, and in Spain, older men have a lot more of these,” he explains.
In the cases analysed by the ISCIII, whose sample differs from the last report from the Health Ministry, 74% of coronavirus patients who died or who required intensive care had some kind of previous condition: 64% presented cardiovascular diseases, 19% had respiratory problems, and 16% some other kind of issue.
In other countries, diabetes, cancer or immunosuppression issues have been shown to be a factor. The report also underlines the key factor of age: nearly 90% of those who died were over the age of 70 (19.8% between 70 and 79, and 68.9% 80 or over).
This result is compatible with there being fewer patients in intensive care with respiratory illnesses than with cardiovascular issues, given that the latter is much more frequent.
Michael Walsh, journalist and broadcaster: ‘Mainstream media is not mentioning these important factors that if known will massively reduce anxieties, release 47 million people from their being under house arrest, and would lead to a return to work. Is media being deliberately provocative, wholly unprofessional, or are there more sinister globalist undertones.’
Something similar is happening with diabetes, which, in the view of Alfonso López Alba, the spokesperson for the Spanish Diabetes Society, is one of the main risk factors. “The fatality rate varies, but we know that it is around 0.9% and 3%,” he explains. “For diabetes sufferers, this rises to 7.3%, which multiplies the chance of dying from Covid-19 by two, in the best of cases, and by eight, in the worst.”
